I’ve thought about stopping my diatribes against today’s music industry, but the posts are so easy to write. Each week, I can find one of three things:
A rapper arrested on weapons charges
Kanye saying something stupid.
Liam or Noel Gallagher opening their mouths.
This week, it’s Liam’s turn. In an interview with The Times, he called Radiohead’s fans “boring and ugly,” and “they don’t look like they’re having a good time.” Now I’ve never really understood why Oasis was called the second coming of the Beatles; most of it was hype, and I find their music rather noisy and Liam’s voice nasal and irritating. But they’ve never lived up to the hype.
Not having gone to either group’s concerts, I can’t judge whether Radiohead’s fans are having a good time. But I do know a bunch of people who have gone, and they are neither boring or ugly. And I think I would have a good time at a Radiohead concert.
This is yet another example of Liam saying something obnoxious to get attention for his band, which became irrelevant about half a decade ago. What would be even more disturbing is if he actually believed some of the stuff he said.
